Summary
This highly illustrated biography looks at the iconic work and fascinating life of one of our national treasures - Beatrix Potter. It follows Potter from her constricted Victorian childhood to the success and tragedy of the years 1901-13, when she published nearly all her major books yet was denied love by the death of her fiancé. Finally, it traces the last 30 years of Potter's life, when she abandoned books to become a working farmer and pioneer of the conservation movement in the early days of the National Trust
